When it comes to network performance, the 5 “Ps” rule helps guarantee uptime and speed: Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance. In today’s non-stop world, IT pros are tasked with the increasingly difficult job of keeping their organization’s network running effectively and efficiently. In support, we’ve identified three critical focus areas and solutions to ensure poor network performance doesn’t have you playing the blues in your server closet.
- Avoid Downtime: When it comes to downtime, every second could potentially cost an organization millions of dollars. Systems need to be up 24/7 in an ecommerce economy for success. Efficient network performance monitoring software can help IT teams identify and resolve issues at a much quicker speed.
- Monitor Bandwidth: Ensure that you have enough bandwidth to handle the current demands of your network and identify when more space is required. Network monitoring software will alert you when bandwidth demands suddenly spike.
- Make Checklists and Test: Preparation is the key to running a successful network. IT pros must expect the unexpected and can benefit from making checklists to stay on top of priorities and keep systems running smoothly. IT teams must meet the demands of a mobile and connected workforce, and stay ahead of network and server monitoring threats and problems.
